I'm looking into this myself but I've noticed that I have FRM1 module which obviously isn't enough for this kind of modification... Could someone please tell me if upgrading to FRM2 will be enough? I know, FRM3 would be the best choice, but it's harder to get used one...

FRM2 would be fine (FRM3 optimum as you stated) I have LED tails on my 09' E92 with FRM2.

You will have to code (or know someone that can do for you) out the rear Cold/Warm Bulb checks and the Error Reporting.

After that, all is fine, no flickering or hyperflash...

A DCAN cable is on it's way from England and I've already checked all manuals and videos of doing the coding, so I was thinking of doing it myself since each step is explained to the details.

Thanks for the info! I'll post some pics when I get it done.

sorry for the bump, E90Sexion, can you confirm that you set brake force display (BFD) to nicht_activ also?

Thanks for the post btw, will update if I have success with coding the LCI retrofit

I can confirm that I've successfully managed to get LCI taillights working on my 2006 e90 without FRM upgrade.

I wanted to disable bulb checking with the ncs codes provided in #1 post but my FRM module didn't have the exact values, so I had to disable each bulb individually:

KALTUEBERWACHUNG_BLK_H_L
nicht_aktiv
KALTUEBERWACHUNG_BLK_H_R
nicht_aktiv
KALTUEBERW_RL_BL_2_L
nicht_aktiv
KALTUEBERW_RL_BL_2_R
nicht_aktiv
WARMUEBERWACHUNG_BLK_H_L
nicht_aktiv
WARMUEBERWACHUNG_BLK_H_R
nicht_aktiv
WARMUEBERW_RL_BL_2_L
nicht_aktiv
WARMUEBERW_RL_BL_2_R
nicht_aktiv

This is it, fixes bulb checking (flashing) on the car startup and normalizes blinker speed...

(tested on FRM1 2006 build)

Finally coded my LCI tails, just disabled ALL cold/warm bulb checks. I would know if my bulb goes out anyways.

I have one weird thing going on. I have a right turn signal malfunction message but everything seems to be fine with the lights. They are all blinking at the right speed. I double checked all the code and all the L & R's I have posted above match. Anyone seen this before?

Maybe this is common sense but I screwed it up. So just in case you seem to have your right tail working perfectly but your left reverse light does not work then you need to mirror this pic for the connector on the left side everything is opposite.

Hi, can anyone help I'm having the same problem as the above?

Hi, cheers for the reply... Yeah it's a 2007 and I've bought the wiring harness from BM and fitted it in the boot which all works fine but the outer lights are the problem, they are lighting up the LED lines as normal but then the right brake light is illuminated also, the other brake light wont light up even when you press the pedal but does when lights are turned fully off as the guy in the old post explains??

No not had coding done but I was thinking that was just to remove the bulb failure light on dash?

Cheers
